Just so that you know here we are talking about photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt (some have been misspelling him as Eisenstadt as well).
So Alfred Eisenstaedt is the guys behind all those famous photos, especially for instance, about 300 of Marilyn Monroe beyond the half-dozen or so that got published.
Canadian press is reporting the following –
More than seven decades after Life first appeared as a magazine devoted to photojournalism, the venerable brand is to be resurrected as a website early next year.
Announced Tuesday, the site will let visitors search and browse through some 10 million professional images from Life’s archives, the bulk never before seen by the public, plus thousands of photos of current events that will be added each day. Visitors will be able to view the photos, share them or print them out for noncommercial use – all for free.
So basically this site – Life.com is going to frame and sell all the popular photographs that you have seen over a period of time. People love these photographs and now they have a shot at buying these and putting up at their work place, homes, offices etc.
Also there is another controversy brewing. Well not really controversy but who hasn’t seen that famous photo after WWII got over and people erupt into celebration at the Times Squre when a sailor pulls a nurse into an embrace.
The iconic image of that kiss, immortalized by the photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt in Life magazine, became the symbol of a joyful nation’s victory.
Glenn McDuffie, now 80 years old, joined the ranks of more than 10 other men who over the years have claimed to be that swashbuckling sailor.
As the 62nd anniversary of the famous photo approaches, McDuffie said he wants the truth to come out once and for all — it was he who made the world swoon with his triumphant kiss. The guys even took lie detector tests and passed it. So he might be the one!
